Snake Eyes

Author Bitty Martin worked in sales and marketing at the Arkansas Times, KATV, and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. She then earned a nursing degree at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, was hired at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and later worked across America as an operating room traveling nurse. Throughout Martin’s varied career and travels, she never forgot her friend in Hot Springs, whose suspicious death in 1966 had always been a mystery. Martin wrote Snake Eyes: Murder in a Southern Town to try to find some answers. 

Snake Eyes: Murder in a Southern Town reveals the true story of frightening times when a girl’s 1966 suspicious death at Hot Springs’ Blacksnake Ranch triggered the owner to commit a murder. Hot Springs residents were terrified of the ranch owner, and soon scary stories of his murders and cover-ups began swirling around the Spa City—and they still are told today.
